This is a warm welcoming hotel with fantastic food. An excellent choice on the menu. We visited it one evening and the food was so good we didn't consider going anywhere else the following day of our trip.

Local pub with a restaurant. Usually busy although we only booked in the day and it was not full when we were there. The food was very good and a good price. Worth a visit for the food - slightly unusual but very tasty

Under new management since August 2016, The Tipsy Laird is a traditional village pub in the heart of the Cairngorm National Park with a great range of local Malt Whiskies, Scottish Gins & Cask Ales, and a fantastic food offering at affordable prices, with daily specials as well. The Tipsy Laird boasts a stunning South facing beer garden, perfect for lunch on a weekend or a quiet pint in the evening. Or if you prefer the indoors, we have plenty of seating in the bar & restaurant areas, with a roaring fire for the winter months. We are family & dog friendly, although please note persons under the age of 18 (this includes babies) are not permitted on the premises after 8.30pm unless consuming a meal. Please note that restaurant service concludes at 9pm every night. Dinner reservations are recommended, especially from May - September & during school holiday times.
